george bush xli resigned his membership in the nra because they got away from what they were supposed to be doing, the things we just discussed and got into this issue of conspiracy theories, as you said, black helicopters, et cetera, et cetera. that's a bad thing. if you're out there trying to educate the public on how to handle weapons safely, who not to shoot, including, you know, yourself, go get help if you need that sort of thing, that's a good thing. that's not at all what the nra stands for in the public's mind today, and if that's the case, then their image is worse than what we know, and they're hypocrites on top of that. that's the saddest part. >> let's just say that jimmy's dream of a third gun ownership organization were to come there true and there would be an advocate for the sane ordinary man on the street gun owner, what do you think realistically they could lobby for in washington. >> those people are pro-gun registries. my father was a lifetime member of the nra who resigned his membership over their response to the sandy hook shootings. he collects guns, he loves

one either new orleans or baton rouge. >> that was george w. bush discussing the biggest mistakes of his presidency in his final press conference. president obama did not mention that it took two days -- two days -- for national guard troops to arrive after the hurricane struck or three days for fema to acknowledge that there was a situation at the superdome. instead, our 43rd president wished he had done a different photo-op. that clip is from january 12th, 2009, more than three years after the storm laid waste to new orleans and the gulf coast. here's why we're talking about it right now. a new ppp poll finds that 29% of louisiana republicans believe president obama was responsible for the poor response to hurricane katrina. that is more than the 28% who blame george w. bush, the man actually president at the time and for the three years following it. the results are even more stunning among republicans over the age of 65. 42% of them blame the botched response on barack obama who was at the time a freshman senator in the united states congress. >>> coming up, the white house ex

you for being with us. barack obama often mocks the foreign policy of president george w. bush. as president himself obama cannot escape his mounting foreign policy flies. and he and his administration and the american people are now bearing the embarrassing consequences. former egyptian president, president obama held for some from power more than two years ago. to the was ordered to be released from prison. he is to be released within 48 hours. his release is another slap in the face for mr. obama. follows the ouster of the muslim brotherhood from power and mr. obama's president of choice. the violence and deadly clashes between the military-run vernment and the muslim brotherhood and the protesters are now responding. continuing with violence in all likelihood this friday when supporters reportedly will conduct what they call a day of martyrs. and no relief for president obama in syria either. opposition forces climbing more than 1,000 civilians were killed in chemical gas attacks earlier today on the outskirts of damascus. the alleged attacks come exactly one year and one d
but was involved in the summer in july when george bush was president, when the fisa amendment was passed to enhance the collection ability of the nsa and the senate approved it 97-0. so he said, i have not been involved in it since, but what they're doing is collecting, not looking. so i get all this e-mail, doesn't mean they're looking at it. they have it. if i go adam gadan, i can go and look it up and see who he's been talking to and maybe connect the dots. but they have no interest in mr. and mrs. sally johnson in iowa and arkansas. >> but it does look like they're spying on with us the metadata. they have phone calls and the internet stuff. brian, your source who you in the beginning during the bush year, it started off as one thing. and james sensenbrenner he says this thing has morphed into something not legal so they have to change the law. >> if you want to go through my e-mails, fine, i'm not doing anything wrong, but we don't trust -- we don't trust you with the information now. because they're saying they're not doing anything wrong. the courts are saying they are. the courts

actually with an american journalist calling him a traitor, and then cuts to george w. bush awarding him the presidential medal of freedom. so talk about our transition of a society and how we view him. >> hopefully if the film is doing its job, that's what it's about. once he refuses induction, he doesn't change, so to him being vilified by david suskind to get the medal of freedom from president bush is because we changed. so that's for me is what the film is about, our transformation, and how muhammad ali, being in the cross hairs of the black freedom struggle and the antichef vietnam movement, not because he was a professional activist. he does not insert himself to be an anti-war leader. that role was really thrust upon him, you know, and stuck to his principles, made a moral stand. he assumed he was going to prison. that's a real hard thing for people to remember now. had he was sentenced to five years in prison, that's what he thought was going to happen. and, you know, it takes -- took i believe tremendous, incredible courage, hopefully on an inspiring level to young people now,
, and perhaps for some not, he said they're very similar. george w. bush and president obama have a similar commitment on national security issues as well as criminal justice issues, but what he said that's different is the approach. george w. bush approached things much more like a ceo would, and obama approaches things with a legal perspecive, and that's really not that surprising when you consider their personal backgrounds. >> interesting. joe johns, thanks so much. great work. >>> president obama is in new york to talk about reducing college costs. we're going to dip into his remarks live, coming up. >>> but first, a moment of classic "crossfire" with one of the new hosts. >> when i say the more things change, the more they stay the same, right now our do-nothing congress is on vacation, but back in 1998, we had a future speaker of the house on "crossfire," and he was defending the record of another do-nothing congress. check this out. >> it's projected you're going to work 89 days max this year. why should we pay you for more than 89 when you're only working 89? >> well, that's 89 day
